Water sports are king at Mexico Beach! This family vacation destination offers the best that a Florida vacation can offer, without the crowds that have become all too commonplace at other Florida destinations. We like to call this area “The Quiet Alternative”. But although the pace is slower, and the crowds smaller, there’s still lots to do!
